FOALS Releases New Album “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1”:Streaming
- British rock band FOALS released their fifth studio album “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1” on March 8, 2019.
It is the first album in four years. The album is considered the first half of a two-piece project, being supplemented by their consecutive sixth studio album “Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2”, to be released this fall.
The band started recording the album in the end of 2017. But founding member and bassist, Walter Gervers left the band during recording the album.
The album's title is taken from the epigraph of the T. Michael Martin novel "The End Games", which claims "Everything not saved will be lost" originated as a "Nintendo 'Quit Screen' message"
Before the release of the album, the band appeared on Annie Mac BBC Radio 1, where the band performed the songs from the album.
The band said to their fans, “To all our patient fans, We couldn’t be more excited for you to hear all the work we’ve poured ourselves into over the past 18 months. The albums which will be coming out are two halves of the same locket. They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.
Musically, we pushed ourselves to the furthest limit. Lyrically, the songs resonate with what’s going on in the world at the moment. These songs are white flags, or mirrors, or attempts to work through the confusing times we live in… each in a different way.
So thank you for yr support & love. We can’t wait to share the new albums with you & to see yr faces in crowd out on the road. Get ready for all the bangers on the way.”
